Overview

A first-hand account of Domenico “Mick” Cacciola’s life as an Australian detective over the course of three decades, this thrilling memoir captures the color and grit of policing in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, which, in its heyday, was the sleazy epicenter of gambling and prostitution. From making the arrest in Australia’s first televised siege, the hijacking of the Seaworld helicopter, to being expected to chauffeur Commissioner Terry Lewis’s mother around, Cacciola has done—and seen—it all, and with Who’s Who in the Zoo? he shares it all. Be it desperately trying to grab a woman trying to commit suicide by jump off a bridge or holding a gun to the head of a hitman who was contracted by the mafia to kill Cacciola himself, this is the story of an honest cop who was told to turn a blind eye to the rampant gambling, prostitution, and corruption that surround him and did as he was told, for a while.
